BC: March 2016
Base 3 had a wonderful visit to St Margaret's Church yesterday as part of their RE focus this term.
Reverend Alison welcomed the children to the church and explained her role as the minister. Then the children had a guided tour of the church to look at the features of a church.
Mr Bebbington took the children up to the 'ringing chamber' to see where the bells were rung. Everyone had the opportunity, if they wished, to have a go at ringing one of the church bells — fully supervised, of course! We could hear the bells being rung, back at school!
Mr Morrison was very kind and showed the children around the organ loft. He explained that he was a pianist but was now learning to play the organ. He told them that it wasn't too late to learn something new and that you can't be perfect at something straight away. The children sang the hymn 'One more step along the world I go' while Mr Morris accompanied them. The children enjoyed having a go at playing the organ too. Great fun!
We have to thank Mr Bebbington, Mr Morris and Rev. Alison for giving up their time to help the children learn more about the church in our village.
A very big thank you, too, to Mrs Clarke for organising such an enjoyable visit to enhance their learning in RE.

What a busy week we had last week! We started off the week by watching an explorer enter an ancient pyramid. We used role play and conscious alley to think abut the characters's thoughts and feelings when entering the pyramid. As a class, we did a lot of vocabulary work to try and expand and develop the vocabulary we use in our writing. We will be using all of this work to produce a piece...
We've had a great time this week in Base 4. We've continued out work on properties of materials, investigating thermal insulators, dissolving and methods of separating materials. The children made some fantastic observations when finding out if materials were soluble or insoluble and lots of scientific inquiry was on display. I was impressed with how well the children used the...
We have been budding scientists this week. After reading our class text 'The Garbage King', we decided that Mamo needed a new mattress as we felt that a straw one probably wasn't that comfy. Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...
